Metal Roofing Ideas for Your Pittsburgh Home

Feb 28, 2018

Some Pittsburgh neighborhoods have traditional homes that feature elements like brick siding and tree-lined cul-de-sacs. Others have contemporary and modern designs with a more industrial feel. No matter your personal or neighborhood aesthetic, there is a metal roofing style suitable for you.

Check out these metal roofing styles and how they can create an impact in your neighborhood:

Colonial Style Homes

Many homes throughout the area feature colonial style homes. These have medium pitched roofs and are traditionally covered in wooden shakes. While wooden shakes add charm and character to your colonial style home, they’re also prone to rot. Even with proper treatment, wooden shingles are the least durable of all the roofing material types. Fortunately, you can get metal roofing shingles that emulate the look and charm of shakes. Since metal is impervious to rot, you can enjoy your new roof for decades to come – some 50 years on average.

Modern and Contemporary

New subdivisions and urban homes tend to have an “industrial” feel. Standing seam metal panels lend themselves well to urban homes and play well with a variety of textures and home styles. Contemporary homes typically have asphalt shingle roofs, which only last 15 to 20 years. By swapping out your tired shingles with metal panels or shingles, you can triple the life of your roof while enjoying the contemporary aesthetic of asphalt.

Historic Homes

Do you live in a part of Pittsburgh where many of the homes have historic significance? If so, you might be wary of installing something as “modern” as a metal roof. However, metal roofing materials might be one of the best investments you ever make in your historic home. Your home will enjoy extra structural integrity and you won’t have to worry about rotting to the frame when you have a metal roof. While other roofing materials can let in water as they begin to rot, metal is the strongest option on the market, and will protect your home for decades to come. Best of all, your metal roof requires little maintenance and upkeep, freeing up your budget to maintain your home’s historic value. Save your money for home improvement projects – not roof repair.

One of the best things about metal roofs is that they’re completely customizable. With your metal roofing contractor, you can choose the perfect color, style, and look to achieve your goals. Stand out with a standing seam roof that makes a dramatic statement, or blend in and meet your homeowner association requirements by choosing a roof that emulates the look of other roofing materials. You can be as traditional or as modern as you choose – all while enjoying the superior longevity and durability that only a metal roof can offer.
